“[Culture] is acquired and transmitted mainly by symbols, including their embodiments in artefacts. The essential core of culture consists of historically derived and selected ideas and especially their attached values.” - Earley, P.C. & Mosakowski, E., 2002. Linking Culture and Behavior in Organizations: Suggestions for Theory Development and Research Methodology. In The many faces of multi-level issues. Emerald Group Publishing, pp. 297–319.
